Recipe by sugar baby

a quick, simple yet fun recipee. Ideal for variations like adding choc chips(my fav!!) Fun for kids, especially the adding of almonds(not to mention the deliberately left over mixture!!)

My mother has been making this recipe for years, and I've recently started making it myself. I love it! The only difference is that I add a teaspoon and a half to two teaspoons of vanilla essence to it. I also, for some reason, put the whole batch of mix into a loaf tin once and made 'burnt butter bread' which turned out surprisingly good!
